When you had the wiring connector loose from headlamp switch, You should have used a jumper wire on the proper two terminals to see if low beams would work, with dimmer in low beam position. At the switch, red wire with lite green tracer is voltage, fuse protected, hot all the time. Lite green wire is circuit for low beam.
